Circuit City Sucks

Circuit City needs to fluff up its stock price. Via Eschaton:
The electronics retailer, facing larger competitors and falling sales, said Wednesday that it would lay off about 3,400 store workers. The laid-off workers, about 8 percent of the company's total work force, would get a severance package and a chance to reapply for their former jobs, at lower pay, after a 10-week delay, the company said.
Too bad they can't just offshore all of the jobs to India. Assholes.
Today begins my Circuit City boycott.

UPDATE: Ok, so it occurs to me that boycotting CC doesn't actually help the workers. But who does our continued patronage help, exactly? Is the CEO taking a paycut to help, or are any of the execs? I'm guessing no. And that's the source of my anger -- the corporate mind really does believe that employees are only cost overhead that it should work toward eliminating. Whatever existed of a corporate mindset that believed employees had anything to do with their success is just long, long gone.

Piss on them all.
